During a meeting with reporters in Boca Raton, Fla., on Tuesday, Eagles owner Jeffrey Lurie was asked what made him think that Howie Roseman deserved to be back in charge of the franchise's player-personnel department after Lurie had fired Chip Kelly in December. "The whole plan was for Howie to really spend the time studying state-of-the-art decision-making around the globe in sports," Lurie said. "We really opened it up, from English Premier League, NHL, NBA, MLB - try to find who the best general managers or 'head of basketball operations' were.

EAST RUTHERFORD, N.J. - Eagles owner Jeffrey Lurie endorsed the performance of general manager Howie Roseman and confirmed that the NFL's youngest GM would remain with the organization. "I think Howie's done a great job," Lurie said Sunday after the team's season-ending 34-26 win over the New York Giants. Will Howie be back? "Is that the question?" Lurie said. Yes. "Yes. " Roseman, 39, is entering his sixth season as GM. The team has gone 42-38 (.525 winning percentage)

Fresh out of Fordham Law School a mere 10 years ago, Howie Roseman showed up at Veterans Stadium ready for the first day of his Eagles internship. He felt as high as a first-round draft choice. "I come in, I'm wearing a shirt and tie - I'm in the National Football League," Roseman said. Roseman reported to Joe Banner, the Eagles' president, who had hired him to concentrate on salary cap issues. Right away, Roseman had a question for his new boss: "Where do I sit?" Banner told Roseman the truth.

AS ANDY REID trudged toward his inevitable end as Eagles head coach last December, attention naturally pushed in the direction of Howie Roseman, the Eagles' cherub-faced general manager operating in only his first season without Joe Banner over his shoulder. Some, including his boss, Jeffrey Lurie, saw Roseman as a shrewd judge of talent, crediting him with the choices made in the 2012 draft, while discounting his culpability in previous drafts and transactions, including the great free-agent "Dream Team" debacle of 2011, which accelerated the Eagles' dive from playoff contender to their current status among NFL rebuilders.

Picture this: The Eagles are on the clock with the No. 4 overall pick and the first three prospects on their draft board already have been chosen. The best available player is graded appreciably lower than the first three, isn't a schematic fit, and the Arizona Cardinals are offering the No. 7 selection and a third-rounder to move up three spots. The Birds brain trust has prepared for this scenario, but someone has to make the final decision. Will it be Chip Kelly or Howie Roseman?

HOWIE ROSEMAN acted far more professionally than I would have. Had a reporter suggested to my face that I had tried to duck him at a news conference, I would have told him to pucker up to my backside. In fact, if I were Roseman, I can think of a half-dozen times during Tuesday's Doug Pederson news conference when I would have gotten out of my seat and said the same thing to the assembled media - sternly adding, "All of you!!!" It was Pederson's day. The former Eagles quarterback and assistant coach returned to South Philadelphia to replace Chip Kelly as captain of the Eagles' ship.

For Howie Roseman, last week's Eagles front-office shake-up cut short his childhood dream of being an NFL general manager. Regardless of his new title as the Eagles' executive vice president of football operations, Roseman will not hold the role that completed a rapid ascent in the organization. He was stripped of the player-evaluation duties he had spent much of his 15-year Eagles career trying to prove he could fulfill. On the day Andy Reid was fired, Eagles owner Jeffrey Lurie endorsed Roseman.

BOCA RATON, Fla. - Jeffrey Lurie pretty much acknowledged Tuesday that he kept Howie Roseman around last year after taking away personnel power, and sent Roseman on a sort of global quest for the secrets of sports leadership, in order to hedge his bet on Chip Kelly. "It was always a potential," Lurie said, when asked if bringing Roseman back to run Eagles personnel at some point had been the plan all along, even as he was handing Kelly the reins after the coach demanded them early in 2015.

During this quiet Eagles offseason in which the silence is only broken by rambling assumptions from the outside, it was a rare moment over the weekend when former general manager Howie Roseman cleared his throat and had something to say. What he said is that, at least from his point of view, one of the most popular recent assumptions isn't a very good idea. According to Roseman, who spoke at the Geek Thanksgiving known as the Sloan Sports Analytics Conference, trading up in the first round of the NFL draft in order to get a coveted player is rarely worth what you have to give up. He doesn't recommend it. "The history of trading up for one player, when you look at those trades, isn't good for the team trading up and putting a lot of resources into it," Roseman said, "because the guys who are really good at the draft, if you're hitting on 60 percent of your first-round picks, that's a pretty good track record.

For the next week, the Eagles can revel in the excitement of moving up to the No. 2 pick to draft a potential franchise quarterback. But once presumptive selection Carson Wentz arrives in Philadelphia, it will be up to coach Doug Pederson to figure out how the crowded depth chart will work. The Eagles made clear that Sam Bradford is still their starting quarterback. However, considering the assets the team surrendered to draft Wentz, the team must also make sure that their investment eventually bears fruit.

The Eagles shoved in all their chips Wednesday, and now they will get the guy they wanted without the guarantee of a jackpot return. Time will tell how Howie Roseman played this hand, but it is already clear that he felt this move was worth making only for two of the quarterbacks on the draft board. That might have been the Eagles' biggest mistake. After consulting with owner Jeffrey Lurie, head coach Doug Pederson, the scouts, the assistant coaches, and perhaps anybody else who wanted to offer an opinion down at One NovaCare Way, the team's resurrected chief of decision-making threw a whole bunch of draft picks at the Cleveland Browns for the right to make the No. 2 overall selection in next week's NFL draft.

Sam Bradford learned about the Eagles' trade for the No. 2 overall pick before practice on Wednesday. He spoke with owner Jeffrey Lurie, top football executive Howie Roseman and coach Doug Pederson. Bradford was told he would be the Eagles' starting quarterback this season even though the team made a blockbuster deal that is expected to bring North Dakota State quarterback Carson Wentz to Philadelphia if the Los Angeles Rams take Cal quarterback Jared Goff with the No. 1 pick. Then Bradford went onto the field to practice for an organization that gave him a two-year, $36 million contract last month and is prepared to draft his likely replacement next week.

THIS IS what the Eagles should have done: After snookering the Miami Dolphins out of the eighth pick in the draft last month, they should have sat on their hands, selected one of the three of four appealing options that figure to be on the board at No. 8 next Thursday - Ronnie Stanley? Ezekiel Elliott? Vernon Hargreaves? - and taken a well-deserved bow. Instead, they overdosed on testosterone and decided to show the rest of the NFL how smart they are. "We're going to invest in quarterbacks," executive vice president of football operations Howie Roseman said after the Eagles swapped a batch of draft picks, among them the No. 8 pick, their first-round selection next year and a second-round pick in 2018, to Cleveland for the second pick in the draft, which they plan to use on the Los Angeles Rams' sloppy seconds - either Division I-AA product Carson Wentz or Cal's Jared Goff.

HEAVEN KNOWS, Sam Bradford has lived with uncertainty before. Bradford and uncertainty are longtime roommates. He has arm-wrestled it, split a pizza with it, demanded it pay its share of the utilities, picked up the dirty socks it draped over his Heisman Trophy. Uncertainty might have driven some people crazy by now, but Bradford barely notices it anymore. "It's not the first time I've gone through a situation like this. I think I learned a long time ago to not worry about anything that I can't control.

A NYONE WHO thinks they have a good feel for how this Eagles team stacks up against the rest of the league probably hasn't spent enough time thinking about it. All it took was a leisurely stroll around the locker room at the NovaCare Complex on Tuesday morning to drive that reality home. For the first time since Doug Pederson replaced Chip Kelly as head coach, the Eagles' roster - except for defensive end Fletcher Cox - was in one place at one time. In a lot of ways, it was like the first day of orientation at a new job. In other words, it was a bad time to start asking the grunts questions about the finer points of day-to-day operations.

Howie Roseman and Doug Pederson probably felt at the very least that they were performing their due diligence earlier this offseason when they held their private workouts with California's Jared Goff and North Dakota State's Carson Wentz. In truth, it was overdone diligence. The vice president of football operations and head coach should have had their focus elsewhere because they had already made a vital decision at quarterback when they signed Sam Bradford to a two-year deal worth a guaranteed $22 million.

THE STAKES are high, and they could get even higher for the Eagles, as they approach their first draft with Howie Roseman and Doug Pederson running the show, April 28-30. As Roseman noted Monday, this is only the second time the Birds have drafted in the top 10 during his 15-plus years with the franchise, the other 2013, when they took offensive tackle Lane Johnson fourth. Roseman traded up from 13th to eighth last month in the deal that sent Byron Maxwell and Kiko Alonso to Miami.

FLETCHER COX isn't at NovaCare this week for a voluntary minicamp; he and running back Darren Sproles, who has a family commitment, the Eagles said, are the only two players absent, as new coach Doug Pederson and new defensive coordinator Jim Schwartz set up their systems. But ultimately, Cox will be here, de facto general manager Howie Roseman assured reporters. "Fletcher Cox is going to be on our team. He's going to be on our team in October," Roseman said. "We are not trading Fletcher Cox. " Cox, who made his first Pro Bowl after last season, is entering the option year of his 2012 rookie contract, which calls for him to be paid $7.799 million this year.

The straw that sent the camel of Jeff Lurie's patience to the ground last season fell during Chip Kelly's final press conference as Eagles coach, although no one knew at the time that his three-year shrugfest was over. Heading into the season-ending game against the Giants, carrying the burden of a 6-9 record, Kelly was asked if his dual roles as coach and personnel boss had been too much to handle. "I'm not the general manager, so I don't run our personnel department. I'm not in charge of scouting," Kelly said.
